The main goal that any team has when it takes the court is to win. That’s obvious.
But there are always many other goals that are involved in the process, many designed with an eye toward the future.
That was the case Tuesday night as the Windsor volleyball team defeated Northridge in three sets, 25-6, 25-10, 25-11.
The Wizards were happy to win the match, but coach LaVerne Huston was able to rotate her players into different positions and help get them accustomed to playing in different spots. She was also able to give playing time to everyone on the roster.
“It’s good to get other kids on the floor so they have the opportunity to get some playing time and get them into situations,” Huston said.
In practice Huston makes sure that everyone hits from different positions, everyone gets practice setting the ball and that everyone is able to play multiple roles. That way, even if an injury occurs, no one will feel out of place.
“Everyone will be comfortable and everyone being able to get comfortable with whoever is to your left or your right in the rotation is really important as well as the different players being able to hit out of the different positions,” Huston said.
